About this event


Nic will look at the challenges and opportunities for publishing in an increasingly fragmented world. Social and mobile media have changed media consumption rapidly over the last five years, with giant tech platforms disrupting business models and traditional relationships with audiences.

But just as publishers are getting to grips with these changes, the next wave of disruption is on the way. Emerging technologies such as voice, AR, VR, and AI will drive new interactions and more immersive experiences. And with more platforms and formats than ever before, publishers will need to be both more efficient and more strategic in their choices.

Nic will explore how publishers can iterate new products and services more quickly, harness data to create more engaging and personal experiences, and employ technology to drive greater efficiency and value. We'll then hear from Iniviqa CTO Richard Jones who will be exploring how publishers can get the benefits of new modes of content delivery without having to uproot their existing systems.
